Yakutia falls a third behind the schedule of the Northern delivery

The water level in the upper reaches of the Lena River, which turned out to be extremely low, impedes the full-fledged delivery of goods to populated areas of Yakutia. According to the press service of the Lensky United River Shipping Company (LORP), today, September 9, the northern delivery in the republic is made only on 65%

Yakutia falls a third behind the schedule of the Northern delivery
Significant restrictions on ship draft are introduced: cargo transportation is allowed only to vessels adapted for movement at extremely low water level (loading of vessels is only possible at 30%). In some areas (Osetrovo-Vitim), difficulties arose with the delivery of construction materials, pipes, and petroleum products.

Due to the difficult ice conditions in the Sea of ​​Japan (including unsatisfactory wind-wave regime) for more than 10 days it was impossible to move the "river-sea" vessels, which made the delivery of cargoes to the points of the Arctic coast rivers extremely difficult.

The result of this situation was the appeal of the Government of Yakutia to the Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation: to extend the period of navigation on the route of the Northern Sea Route due to the fact that they do not have time to deliver the Northern delivery to Yakutia on schedule, notes REGNUM.

According to the State Research Center of the Russian Federation "Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute", the weather will quite allow this to happen (the beginning of sustainable ice formation in the Laptevo, East Siberian Seas, presumably, will begin in the second decade of October).

As previously reported, this year navigation in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) takes place at low water levels in the upper reaches of the Lena River and extremely low (critically low) water levels on the Amge River.
